Looking east on Portage Avenue East prior to the opening of the Portage and Main underground pedestrian concourse on February 23, 1979

Caption (on file): "Shivering on the corner of Portage and Main on a cold, windy day waiting for traffic lights to change will now be just a memory with the opening of a climate controlled underground pedestrian concourse linking the four corners of Winnipeg's famous intersection."

Looking west on Portage Avenue prior to the opening of the Portage and Main underground pedestrian concourse on February 23, 1979
